right now, bill, but reality while people are hoping for it including house speaker john boehner he is not very optimistic at all that democrats and republicans can achieve a grand bargain on the nation's budget deal. having said that, you will recall that the president did launch a major charm offensive, reaching out to republicans and democrats to find some common ground, in getting america's fiscal house in order. but some republicans remain skeptical about the president's sincerity. congressman paul ryan, who we just heard from, expressed doubts that the president's recent comment that the america is not in an immediate debt crisis. ryan contends america is teetering on the edge of a crisis and it will have serious repercussions. >> you know who gets first hurt in the debt crisis, the poor and elderly. that is what we're trying to prevent from happening. pro-growth economic policies to get people working to bring in more revenue and get the entitlement system under control so it doesn't go bankrupt so people can seriously plan for the promises government made for them in reirrel
%. john kerry also won 60% more votes than al gore had won four years before -- had won at 6% 6% morees -- had won votes. there was a huge increase in turnout. in this election, barack obama received 3.5 million fewer votes than he received four years before. a 5% decrease in votes. mitt romney received about 1 million more votes than john mccain. said andmmonly reported that he received fewer popular votes than mccain, and that is because of the delay of california and some of the other west coast states in reporting their numbers, but when they finally came in, he did. obama clearly benefited from a superior micro targeting and turnout effort, building on what the bush campaign had done in 2004 and then the substantial advances the obama campaign made in 2008 and working through a four-year period. they used consumer preferences and things of that nature to identify strong and unwavering obama voters, and then they used personal contact with a message. towards the voter propensities. geared towardsge the voters' propensities. you can see the results in the 12 target states, most of wh
to be involved is currently being detained. >> john folton former uss ambassador to the united nations talked about how the white house is handling the attack. >> part of the administration -- the problem here is many think they engaged in a cover up they made up the story about the attack. >> i will ask him about his take on the benghazi investigation with the new developments. about that man elizabeth just talked about who is in custody in libya. we don't know witness or suspects but yet we have not had access to him either. stay tuned for that. now iran showing off the art land it represents iran's first oil heavy presence in the state water. the ship is armed with surface to surface air missiles plus anti aircraft batteries. ahmadinejad is in port city iran. iran says it put 18 people on trial for their involvement in the killings of several nuclear scientists. this have you had yo showing the most recent attack since january. this showed 5 out of 10 scientists died. iran accused the u.s. and britain of being behind it. ve israel has not commented. the trial will begin in months. on the s
of trouble and danger for our country, who will put our country first? [crowd responds john mccain] >> jon: they just shouted something at him. that's right john mccain doesn't have time, graham, for your cheap political games. he will get this train back on track like the straight talk express. >> i do not believe we should move forward with this nomination until questions are answered that senator graham and senator ayotte and i have asked to be answered. [laughter] >> jon: what the hell. sorry but it's hard to take your tenacity on benghazi as honest fact finding given, mr. mccain, some of your past history on the subject. >> mccain did not april tend the classified briefing on benghazi yesterday. >> he was having a press conference calling for the select committee complaining about not getting enough information. >> jon: mr. mccain here is the information you requested. not now, can't you see i'm busy demanding the information you have in your hand and are attempting to give to me. and get off my lawn you son of a -- [laughter] senator mccain what the hell is going on here? >> we've ha
, long johns-- pow! >> from comedy central's world news headquarters in new york, this is "the daily show" with jon stewart. ["daily show" theme song playing] [cheers and applause] captioning sponsored by comedy central >> jon: welcome to "the daily show". my name is jon stewart. journalist stephen brism he is the author of atime magazine cover story on what sailing our health care system. it turns out our health care system has price cancer and no insurance. [laughter] we've been discussing this week on the program how republicans led by senators lindsey graham and salty mccain are holding up the nominees for the defense and c.i.a. until the senators get the information on what happened in benghazi including who changed the talking points susan rice used on the sunday morning shows so we can be sure no americans are harmed again by the talking points. >> whatever was said based on information provided by the intelligence community on a series of sunday shows bears no relevance on the ultimate questions of what happened in benghazi. there's an obvious political obsession over a series of
to be quiet. that's a quote by the white house. that's what former u.n. ambassador john bolton is talking about this morning. >> i think the entire way the administration has handled the benghazi affair has been abnormal. they were not made available to congress or others finding out what happened dha. part of the administration's problem here is that many people think they engaged in a cover up. they made up the story about the demonstration because they didn't want to reveal terrorist groups were present in and around benghazi. i think the way to get to the bottom of it is to allow these people to talk to members of congress to tell them what happened to them on the day of the attack and if they feel indim dated if they are being withheld from congress that is only going to continue. the question in other people's minds, is this a cover up, is it not. >> ranking member of the community a democrat is also talking saying everything is being done to find out the truth. >>> right now there's an investigation going on. what happened in benghazi is a terrible situation when americans loss the
. let's go straight to cnn's john king. he's on the scene traveling with the president in jerusalem. they're investigating but there is no firm evidence yet that the syrians have used chemical weapons. >> that was the fascinating exchange when the issue came up, wolf. you know well all the intelligence assets that are here. israel, the neighbor to the northeast is syria. they've been helping the united states. there are satellite images. there are drones flying over syria from israel and other places in the region. and there are different ways they can test if chemical weapons were used. sensors they put in the air to test. so there is no question there is an intelligence investigation under way. so the president made clear again that would be a game changer but he said he is waiting for the facts. he didn't say what he would do, if there is conclusive evidence he wasn't clear. it would be a game changer but what next? white house officials say that is one reason they're going to be very, very careful, gather the facts, so they can talk about what the president would do if this work
supporting corporate welfare. and then the next day john boehner says, uh-uh. we are not going to close those loopholes on oil companies or hedge fund managers or people who park their profits overseas. we are going to give them all of the corporate welfare that will we can. i have to tell you. i think it's a good report. i don't think the republican party is going to pay any attention to it. and i think unless the republican party changes, i think we could see the republican party out of the running and a third party taking over and the republican party being in the dust bin of history mark my words, they pay attention to this romped, they change their policies, not just their delivery or they go in the dust bin of history. that's my take away from this g.o.p. report. do you think they will change? 866-55-press. do you think they are big enough to change? do you think they realize how out of touch they are with american people? give us a call. let's talk about it. >> this is "the bill press show."

. that is more than two years before the wright brothers took to the air at kitty hawk. joining us john brown, the aviation historian behind what could be a revision to history. so, john, i was amazed to read you've been working on this really only since last year. you were hired to do a documentary and found about something about this man, guys stuff whitehead? >> that's correct, jon. i was just as shocked as everybody else when i found it. jon: there is a lot of evidence out there. i mean his story was covered front page in newspapers around the country. more than 100 you learned. why have we not heard of him till now? >> i heard you before the commercial break asking the question, we were wrong about the wright brothers. well we weren't. one or two historians who said that, they were either wrong or just not looking hard enough. and that's what we historians do. we dig up facts and present them. jon: all right. so, what do you know about whitehead? he was a german immigrant. he knew a lot about engines and he was also fascinated with aircraft. the plane that he flew looks very much like a
reporter kristy john call me. >> can you take us through what happened? you heard the fire alarm, started to leave your room and what happened? >> usually when the fire alarm goes off in my apartment it's usually somebody burning something on the stove. i opened my door to see what was burning. i didn't see any smoke or anything. i just saw my roommate, james, just standing in front of me, approximately like four feet in front of me with some kind of assault rifle. he had it pointed down at the ground but as soon as i opened the door he just made eye contact with me and started raising it towards my head. >> when he made eye contact with you, what did he look like? what was his expression? >> he just had a really cold, hard stare. >> so you guys weren't exactly friends. >> no. i lived with him -- i moved into my apartment at the beginning of fall semester, fall of 2012. you know, i have tried to get to know him and stuff. but, no, we're not friends. he's just very anti-social. he doesn't want to know me. he doesn't want to make friends. he just keeps to himself. >> so you opened your door
obama and speaker of the house, john boehner, both in denial or are they drinking the same stuff? >> i think it's important to recognize is that we've already cut 2.5, 2.7 trillion dollars out of the deficit. if the sequester stays in you've got over 3 1/2 trillion dollars of deficit reduction already so we don't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. in fact for the next ten years it's in sustainable place. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis, but we all know we have one looming. >> greta: turns out a majority of americans disagree with the president and the speaker of the house. a new poll showing, a fox poll, that 68% of americans describe the national debt as an immediate problem. only 27% say the debt can be handled in the future. mayor, what do you think? the speaker and the president don't think it's an immediate problem? >> i think the american people are far better economists than the people in washington. the reality we do have a serious debt problem. it's been accumulating now for four or five years. under obama it's been accumulating at massive amounts and there'
is overheard saying. a cnn exclusive. jake tapper sat down with the house speaker john boehner and specifically asked the speaker about what the president was overheard saying. >> president obama arrived in israel today, he had some interesting comments for prime minister netanyahu on the tarmac. he said it is good to get away from congress. netanyahu laughed and said, believe me, i know. any reaction? >> so much for the charm offensive. >> but does a comment like that have any impact, you think? >> no, not really. president is meeting with the president of israel, he's got his legislative issues, the president has got his. comes with the territory. >> comes with the territory. >> i would rather be heckled than ignored or as i like to say, you only tease the ones you love. >> takes the full interview with the speaker, coming up for our north american viewers with "the lead" at 4:00 p.m. eastern. a lot of us remember some of the tense moments during the first four years, especially that meeting they had in the oval office when the prime minister seemed to be lecturing the president. there was an
john boehner and asked him about his reaction to president obama's comments. and this is what he had to say. >> president obama arrived in israel today. he had some interesting comments for prime minister netanyahu on the tarmac. he said "it's good to get away from congress." netanyahu laughed and said, believe me, i know. any reaction? >> so much for the charm offensive. >> does a comment like that actually have an impact, do you think? >> no, not really. you know, president's meeting with the president of israel, you know, he's got his legislative issues, the president's got his. comes with the territory. >> comes with the territory. >> i would rather be heckled than ignored. or as i like to say, you only tease the ones you love. >> wait, there's more. the full exclusive interview will be on "the lead with jake tapper" today 4:00 eastern time. >>> all right. president obama says the u.s. is israel's strongest ally and greatest friend. the president is on his first visit to the jewish state since taking office. among the tough issues he's discussing with israeli leaders the war in s
in 1824 presidential campaign of her husband, john quincy adams. and the complex relationship with her mother-in-law, forever -- former first lady abigail adams. tonight at 8:00 eastern on c-span and c-span3. speeches from the weekend meeting of the conservative political action conference. the head of the advocacy group citizens united talked-about car brous's latest efforts to influence republican primaries leading up to the 2014 primary elections. about 15 minutes. >>>> two years ago the president told a lie about the supreme court decision called citizens united. the case struck a huge blow. the president of citizens united is up next. he has proposed document series since 2004. please welcome david bossie. [applause] i'm president of citizens united. it has been a big year, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary. it is great to be back here as we come together for our 40th time. citizens united is doing it again this year, where we get a chance to show off some of the groundbreaking conservative films available today. conservatives need to think of new and innovative ways to develop
sharp criticism at the time. republican colleagues including john mccain called her out on it publically. we invited michele bachmann to come on the program to talk abouter her latest allegations. she declined. the invitation stands open n. the meantime dana bash tried keeping them honest and joins us. you had to chase down the congresswoman. what did she tell you? >> last time i ran after michele bachmann on one of the issues i told you the bad news is she can walk fast in heels. the good news is so can i. h this time she was moving so fast it tested my endurance. i told her i wanted to talk about her speech at cpac, about questionable accusations made about the president's lavish lifestyle. here's how it went. >> i want to ask you is that you said -- you talked about the excesses that he's engaged in, the fact that he has a dog walker which is not true. >> the big point of my speech was about benghazi. this was an absolute disaster a. >> you also made specific accusations about -- >> the secretary of state -- >> spending money that other ps also made. >> the issue is there are four ame
points by the right wing against this president in very volatile times. give you an example. john baltan, the former u.n. ambassador, slammed president obama for being hostile towards israel. look at this. >> i think it's clear that president obama is the most hostile president that america has had since the formation of israel in 1948. >> the most hostile president since 1948 when israel was formed yet we find today, as jim just said, he and netanyahu have met ten times. the highest civilian award given to any civilian is going to be presented to him by perez, the president of israel. >> right. and this goes back to when president obama was running in 2008 and many on the right, from sarah palin on, characterized him as very close to a terrorist. it was all of this insid situation that he's really a muslim, lying about his muslim faith, because of the identity of his father, that he was from kenya, that he was a marxist, and that characterization is carried overall the way up until today. the right wing, for political expediency, constantly tries to portray this president. and by the wa
john mccain and carl levin firing off a letter to urge steps to stop the slaughter saying, "we believe there are credible options at your disposal, included limited military options that would require neither putting u.s. troops on the ground nor acting unilaterally." the senators say it includes prevision airstrikes that could take out president assad's aircraft power and talk about more robust aid to the opposition. significant, of course, carl levi? a democrat. >> bret: ed henry traveling with the president in jerusalem. thank you. explosion at a mosque in damascus left 42 people dead. syrian t is calling at it terrorist suicide blast. among the dead, senior pro-government muslim cleric. let's get some insight now on the syria situation and other foreign policy challenges. joining me tonight is the chairman of the house intelligence committee, congressman mike rogers. mr. chairman, thank you for being here. >> thank you for having me. >> bret: let's start in syria. what do we know about the possibility of chemical weapons being used there? >> if you take the whole body of work, from
, that was house speaker john boehner talking yesterday about a new effort to get to the bottom of what happened in benghazi, libya. more than six months after the terror attacks left our ambassador and three other americans dead and frustration is growing on capitol hill. as republicans accuse the white house of keeping the information under wraps and calls for access to the survivors are met by silence. kt mcfarland joins us via skype. >> hi, ali. >> alisyn: john boehner calls the disparity group of lawmakers into a room and what questions do they need answered? >> you have more and more questions every day the story goes on. we all know that somebody messed up big time before the benghazi attack, and we still don't have any answers as to why the requests for additional security were deni denied. and we don't know requests while the attack was on going. who was available, why did they not make it available to them. we didn't know how long the attack would go on. this doesn't work. at the beginning of the attack usually all hands on deck, everyone should try to do whatever they can to help the
overseas we're going to make life more difficult for john brennan. >> jon: that's a wiseguy like. nice nominee you got there be a shame if something happened to him, mr. president. this might be a good time to remind democrats that the president has a drone program with ambiguous restraints and murky legal justification. this is all for naught. i'm sure he will share the drone e-mails. he pretty much said so a week and a half ago. >> in the months ahead i'll continue to engage congress to ensure not only that our targeting, detention and prosecution of terrorists remains consistent with our laws and system of check and balances but that our efforts are more transparent to the american people and to the world. >> jon: starting with our nuclear codes. 4-13-8 -- now, some americans want to change the codes. he will be asked the security question what hospital were you born in? it's me and the answer, of course, nairobi memorial. wait, hold on! so -- the republicans want information on the benghazi attack which the white house says is pointless. the democrat s wan to know the legal justifi
for another 20 years probably. host: how old are you now, john? caller: i'm 47. host: how long do you plan to work for? caller: probably another 20 years. host: roger in north carolina. hi, roger. caller: yes, current law prohibits issuing pension pavements who aren't retire bud the coalition and unions just finished the commission report that recommend to congress that they change that law now retirees can have their benefits cut if this goes through congress, so i think everybody needs to start making some phone calls. host: all right our last phone call. up next we will talk to congressman steve pearce about his outreach to minorities, women and young voters and then we will turn our attention to capitol hill with earl. we'll be right back. >> 34 years ago fay we began providing access to the kong and federal government. the c-span networks created by america's cable companies in 1979 and brought to you as a public service by your cable providers. >> and we can take pictures with m.r.i. or upset scans or c.t. scans and see the whole thing but there's an enormous gap about how the circui
, everybody, senator john cornyn from texas. we're live here at "america's newsroom." we have a busy day. martha: good morning, bill. i'm martha maccallum. senator rand paul throws his support behind a path for citizenship for the 11 million so illegal immigrants in america. >> we're trying to add teeth to the bipartisan plan. we want to make sure border security is in there. as conservatives we always worry, you will give them legal status and say we give border security later, it never comes like so many liberal promises. what we're asking for is, every year we get to vote on whether the border is becoming more secure. all immigration reform is dependent on those votes. congress gets to vote. not the administration report. congress gets to vote whether or not the border is secure. bill: that is one senator who is making headlines for a couple weeks now. kelly wright live in washington. what is senator paul's objective here, kelly. >> reporter: the bottom line here, bill, first of all good morning to you as well. senator rand paul believes immigration reform condition not become a reali
it and he knew it at the time, but after 9/11, it was all hands on deck, because fox became as john fugelsang said a mecca for those who hate mecca. that was the job for everybody. post neil, these people, a switch went off in their head, we could be attacked on our own soil. i think progressives for a long time were looking for our support in the for mu john mccain adeen, instead of fighting our own terms with russia, we were having a cold war with them and a fake war in afghanistan. a lot of arms that are coming back at us today are either reflective weapons coming from the chinese or the weapons that they bought after the fact. by the way don't work if i am, but the reason for in sadaam's case our going in. 9/11 changing the mentality. it created this oh, crap momentum for a lot of people in the media and then, it was a very useful spot for people like the bush administration who wanted to go into iraq, they thought they'd missed the opportunity, that h. had pulled out too early whatever, 21, 27 day war. they were supposed to pat themselves about the back about how they took out
and another war again. here john is a republican in the suburbs and alexandra, virginia. caller: good morning, thank you for taking my call. in regard to u.s. involvement in the commander testified to the senate last week or two is toogo that it propagated, the situation in we don't terms of truly understand who the resistance is. i heard from folks speaking this one regarding group specifically is in line with u.s. policy or this group is in line with u.s. values. there is no way that anybody could say that and have any degree of confidence or 100% confidence in making that statement. that turned out to be a hoax. unless we have some really solid fidelity as to what we're ,oing and who we are supporting i would say we should not get involved. the second point i would like to make, if we look at u.s. history, the british and french were interested in blake -- breaking the blockade in north and south in the civil war because they were unable to get cotton exports from the south. of whatuick analysis would have happened, but troops in and either tilted the balance in the civil war or even if it
surgeon to separate conjoined twins. he is a johns hopkins hospital neurosurgeon, very successful in his field, and he is going to retire in the next few months. that was already set to happen, and he is a conservative, and so he challenged the president at the prayer breakfast, and he has been very, very good at dishing out the red meat, and the crowd at cpac loved him. he was a very vibrant in his speech to the president, which a lot of the politicians have not really been doing that much now that the election is over, and so, he got a better reception than maybe anybody else, just in terms of an exciting everyone, and so it was notable that in the straw poll he did as well as he did. host: also, sarah palin, the previous nominee, a headline this morning, sarah palin brings down the house at the conference, and she is pictured in newspapers around the country gulp.he big what was that the >> it was a great prop. they were criticizing michael bloomberg, going after the many mentality, as she sees it, and she has had a much lower profile since the election. she is not on television. she
committee, which will be great because then the select committee would look into what happened. john bolton, who used to be our ambassador to the united nations, says something is not right here. listen. >> i think the entire way the administration has handled the benghazi affair has been abnormal and i think it's particularly strange that the people who were there when the attack took place were not made available to congress or others interested in finding out what actually happened that day. part of the administration's problem here is that many people think they engaged in a coverup, that they made up the story about the demonstration because they didn't want to reveal that terrorist groups were prevalent in and around benghazi. i think the way to get to the bottom of the issue one way or the other is to allow these people to talk to members of congress, to tell them what actually happened to them on the day of the attack. and if they feel intimidated, if they're being withheld from congress, i think that's only going to continue. the question in many people's minds: is this a coverup
junior, commander of north american aerospace and norad and general john kelly, u.s. southern command. we also welcome james stavridis. we thank you for your leadership and please pass along our gratitude to the men and women who serve in your commands for their dedication and sacrifices, as well as for the sacrifices of their families whose support is so essential to the success of our military and our nation. since last year's eucom posture, it was likely her last appearance and i am glad that i included the word likely. so now we can thank you. thank you again for your four years as the supreme allied commander, which makes you one of the longest serving commanders in u.s. history. you have been a steady hand during some very turbulent times and we wish you the best in retirement for military service. the witnesses before us represent the united states commitment to defend the homeland to help our neighbors and to come to the collective defense of our close allies in europe. the ability to meet these commitments has been put at risk by the arbitrary budget cuts called sequestration. re
minister benjamin netanyahu. cnn's john king is in jerusalem this morning. john, this is president obama's first trip to israel. how delicate, how pivotal is this visit? >> reporter: well, carol, it is fascinating. i've been here in the past with president clinton, with president george w. bush, now president obama. in the past the israeli-palestinian conflict is always at the top of the agenda but given the event in this complicated neighborhood that is now more complicated and confused than ever, the israeli-palestinian conflict is down on the list. the president wants to share information and get information from his israeli counterparts about what's going on in syria. did the government in syria use chemical weapons against its own people. that's a big question. obviously the nuclear showdown with iran. the presidentister wants assurance if that diplomacy doesn't bear fruit that the president of the united states is prepared to put the military option on the table. and, yes, the president did say he wants to have peace in the holy land and he will make that a priority. no accident th
investigations, she's joined with john mccain and lindsay graham in raising serious questions about that on the national security front. and, actually, her presence there as a strong conservative voice on benghazi and other security issues has counterbalanced hillary clinton's very strong voice when she was secretary of state. so very interesting. uma: what do you think the men come away with from knowing that they are being watched very carefully by the women in this? it can no longer be simply an old boy network. >> yeah. i think the dynamic there has changed too where the men who have serve inside that body for a long time are now used to it. you know, they tell stories, women senators tell the stories when they fist have gotten there, you know, somebody on the senate floor will say, oh, no, this desk is for a senate. kelly ayotte tells the story she turns around, yes, i am a u.s. senator. [laughter] but the men are changing now, i think for the most part tend to look at their female colleagues as just colleagues in the senate. uma: and we're seeing more women in governorships, a
jr. general john kelly, u.s. southern command. we thank you all for your service and leadership. please pass along our gratitude to the men and women who serve in your command of their dedication to the nation and for their sacrifices. it is so essential to the success of our military and nation. at the last year hearing i said that it was likely your last appearance before this committee. i am glad i included the word "likely." now we can thank you again for your nearly four years as supreme allied commander of europe which makes you one of the longest serving ucom commanders. you have been a steady hand on the pillar doing some very turbulent times. we all wish you the very best in your retirement from military service. is witnesses before represent the united states commitment to defense the homelands to come to the collective defense of our close allies. our ability to meet these commitments has been cut at risk. the committee is interested in there isrom each operations in readiness in the areas of responsibility. last friday the secretary of defense announced changes to ou

. obama hoping to accomplish here and why now? why now? >> ambassador john bolton is the former u.n. ambassador to the united nations and a fox news contributor and let's start with that, ambassador. why now? why in year five of the presidency does he now go to israel? >> well, i think because he goes on his terms. there's no domestic political down side now, given that he's faced his last election. so, he can really go and use it for his own purposes, and i think what's interesting here is that there will be a real split on this trip between the public symbolism and the photo opportunities on the one hand, and the substantive conversation that president obama and prime minister netanyahu will have in private. >> megyn: only 10% of the israeli public, according to the latest polls, has a favorable opinion of our president. just 10% say they have a favorable opinion of him. that's a surprising number and it's not exactly the group before whom he's used to speaking. >> right. well, i'd like to know who those 10% are. i mean, i think it's clear that president obama is the most hostil

intelligence. i think, i would add everyone from nancy pelosi to john kerry to bill clinton and denny blair -- tony blair thought saddam hussein was reconstituting the wmd program and used chemical weapons before. there are things we could do better going forward. >> bret: i said operation enduring freedom. that was afghanistan. iraqi freedom, the iraq operation. a.b., you look at how it came to an end. and the violence on the ground now. and what do you think? >> well, that is what is so hard. you look a year-and-a-half, year-and-a-half after the official end of the war and hard to say we protected the gains we made there. not everything we did was wrong. there was a lot of good accomplished. the problem is iranian influence on the rise, al-qaeda getting strong there. a lot of violence that you mentioned. that leaves at it scary play. and, you know, it really to me is a turning point in history in way that the world perceives american strength. our own people marx yourty of americans think they think it was a mistake. the premise of the war will a be questioned, so will the results. >> bre
some problems that they see coming down the road. bill: okay. this is a tweet that senator john thune september out the other day. it reads in part, since passing obamacare, or rather obamacare has produced more than 20,000 pages of burdensome regulations? hash tag broken problem misses. he sent out a picture of the stack of pages you see on regulations compared to the law et cetera. 20,000 pages of regulations? is that a -- >> yeah. senator mitch mcconnell has been making a big deal of this. you may have seen when he appeared at the conservative political action conference he actually took out those 20,000 pages onto the stage with him. his office printed them all out. i asked him, is that a prop? is that just blank paper? he said no, we actually printed out all of the obamacare regulations and a lot of these have come out since the election. republicans were particularly incensed that the obama administration kept some of those regulation, held them back until after the election but they're coming now. bill: big, big picture. 35,000 feet. the idea of the law was to insure those who
of the assassination of john f. kennedy. the 9/11 commission stands alone. that report stands alone as the broadest and most objective and complete report that congress could put together, and we have acted and reacted on recommendations from the 9/11 commission. we need to do the same thing with benghazi. if we do not, if we do not, mr. speaker, history will forever question whether there was a cover-up on what happened at benghazi. in fact we already know there has been. we know that the administration went out and sent susan rice out to do the talk shows, knife different -- five different talk shows on sunday several days later to tell us that all of this violence that erupted in the streets of benghazi came about because of a movie, a video that was produced. as far as i know the individual that exercised his freedom of -- first amendment rights to produce that video, may still be in jail. that's the only punishment that's come out that i know of from benghazi. i think he should be released. that's the first story. then we have different stories that were brought out of the administration, prie

and in the region and here in the u.s. you listen to senator john mccain that the u.s. is not doing something. there was perhaps as much upset when the u.s. decided to go to war in iraq. now there's upset because of inaction, and under the bush administration there was upset because of action. so, it's a struggle to find that fine line. >> host: i think break time. >> guest: great. >> host: then there was libya. which could arguably be a success. some people say a distraction or whatnot but certainly a place where hillary clinton played a pivotal role. she travels to france, as you document in your book, and she basically wants to make sure that other people are going to contribute before -- doesn't seem like she is giving hints the obama administration is going act but she wants to make sure that other people will act with the united states if there's action. so, explain what she is doing in france. >> guest: first, let me give you the context of the trip. i it was one of the most insane trips i have been on. everything was on the move. it felt like the world was ending. you had the earthqua

in three. and in the region. and here in the us. to look at senator john mccain, very upset u.s. isn't doing something. that was perhaps as much upset when he is decided go to war in iraq. not as upset because of an action and under the bush initiative that was upset because of action. it's a struggle to find that fine line. >> host: i think it's break time. >> "after words" is available through podcasts. click podcast on the upper left side of the page. select which podcast you would like to download and listen to "after words" while you travel. >> host: and then there was libya. which could argue be a success, some people say a distraction or whatnot, but certainly hillary clinton played little role. she traveled to france as you document in your book, and she basically wants to make sure the other people are going to contribute before -- doesn't seem like she's giving hands that the obama initiation is going to act but she wants to first make sure other people will act with the united states if there is action. so explain what she's doing in france. >> guest: let me to the context
with john endingler, welfare reform happened in the states. newt gingrich finally got bill clinton to sign it into law a little bit later. you go all the way back to the early 970s when ronald reagan wasn't the president, but the governor of california, and tax reform happened in that state. and it wasn't until later, ironically back in california, when ronald reagan as the president signed into raw the economic recovery -- into law the economic recovery act. real reform happened in the states. as was mentioned yesterday, there are now in america some 30 states that have republican governors and nearly as many that have republican legislatures. [applause] and so that's the good news. the good news is we have success, and it's happening in our states, and we can learn from that to tell our friends and our colleagues in washington how to move forward. because, you see, in the states to be successful we have to be optimistic. we have to be relevant. and most importantly, we have to be courageous. let me talk to you a little bit about each of those three things. you see, when it talks about be
about kelly ayotte and how she's been involved. they are the three amigos, john mccain, lindsey graham and joe lieberman, when joe lieberman retired, they were in search of a third amiga and they found kelly ayotte, someone who is very articulate, who has a legal history and is obviously someone who's a tougher lawmaker who's really sort of latched on to these issues and made them her own. i don't know exactly what she's planning to do with that, but it's interesting to watch because it's automatically given her a platform on issues that clearly get talked about. i think that's one of the most important things about women being involved in this committee. we always talk about these issues. host: we're talking about the female senators that sit on the senate armed services committee, the impact it's having on military issues. here is kelly ayotte during the committee vote on the nomination of chuck hagel to become defense secretary. >> this nomination in a very different place. i very much agree with my colleague, senator reed, who is here as he describes the state of our country and ou
